[Amel Yacht Owners] Holding Tank Discharge Lock


Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

When my vessel was in the US water, I was recommend to put duck tape.
I have never been checked, so don't know if this is enough... some people use lock (seems better).
my understanding is that you have to do something to prevent an accidental opening.
but I think, like always, it will depend of the person that inspect you, if he/she wants to find something to fine you with, he/she will find...

Hope you get more feedback on that.

Sincerely, Alexandre

For those of you who are in or have been in US
waters, how did you secure the valve for the holding tank
discharge? I am puzzled as to an effective way of blocking
the lever for the two valves.
